the boomerang simply
means a figurative

after many days per

somebody, sometimes

Of political boome

finds the curious weapon one of tne most inter
esting features of tho country. Thcro arc many
conjectures as to its origin, but few real facts
are known to a certainty. That it was born
-with the race is quite possible. Tho tradition
among the natives as to its beginning is moro
or less of a fable, and somewhat to tho effect
that, onco upon a time, there was a canuiuui
king wbo was very lazy. Alter dining can

ieaves, and after a littlo practico he found that
he could hurl it so that he might stab his friends
in tho buck while ho was facing them in friendly
conversation. -This recommended it, and it
became popular. That was the boomerang.
It is made of hard, tough wood, usually bent
in such a way as to follow the gram of tho wood.
TMoare rarely found which describe tho same
curve, for they vary from an almost straight
Stick to a shape like tho letter V. They are
from a foot and a half to three feet and a half
in lonetii, in width about two and a half inches,
and one third of an inch thick. Quo side is
convex, tho other flat, and sometimes it has
two or three sharpened knife-like edges. The
ends, usually rounded, are sometimes also made
very sharp. Some are ornamented with strange
carvings, and all varying according to different

each having its own make or style, showing re
spectively rough crudcnejs or considerable
finifeb, and being cepecially characteristic in
the ends or points all of which a boomerang
connoisseur will distinguish at once, and locate
as to tribe and section.
The missile is taken in the hand by one end,
Kith the convex edge forward, and with a dex
terous twist is projected as if to hit an object
directly in front. This is done with a skill
that no white man has ever been able to under
stand or imitate. When it is thrown the pecu
liar nature of the weapon asserts itself. It
gradually mes, rotating all tho while very
rapidly, and at last takes a retrograde motion
and falls back of its projector. The natives
themselves cannot explain tho operation, for
they admit that they do not know how it is
done.
A boomerang can be thrown 300 to 800
feet and return to tho thrower. It can be
whirled around a house or a tree, hitting a
man on the other side with perfect certainty.
It is useless for a victim to attempt to get out
of the path of the deadly missile, for its path

is everywhere. No one knows except tho man
who throws it which direction it will lake, but
he can know it to a great nicety. A skillful
black warior can cause a boomerang to chase
a man about a field, and finally rueh at him
and nvcr miss its aim, and if tho edge is of
proper keenness it will rip him up the back, or
cut 5um in two without difficulty. When
thrown by the hand of an expert its zigzag
motion will kill one after another of a flock of
birds flying in a ditect line; so it is not only
tho chief fowl producer of tho native Austra
lian, but is also his best defense in war.
Not long ago there were four nativo North
Queonelandtrs in New York, who gave astonish

Tho "World's Congress of llepr-esciitatlvo
Women.
Tho World's Congress of Representative
Women, held under the auspices of the Woild's
Congress Auxiliary of tho 'Columbian Exposi
tion of 1693, was tho marvelous efflorescence of
woman's activities, which have been slowly
budding and developing through ages of
Christian endeavor.
Mrs. May Wright Scwall is the gardener who
has gathered tho seeds which are in many
climes and kingdoms destined to take root.
Mrs. Sowaii's historical resume of tho pro
ceedings of the Congress is tho work of a
woman of broad culture, keen analyses, lofty
tolerance, and that generous comradeship which
takes inata glance the momentous and diversi
fied possibilities of the woman of the nineteenth
century.
Mrs. Potter Palmer proved herself tho con
summate leader when she chose Mrs. Sewall
Chairman of the orgauizitiou of tho Woman's
Congress, and President Bonny of the World's
Congress paid Mrs. Sewall a just compliment
in his address at the Spring session of the
Woman's Congress, when he commented upon
tho incomparable ability, energy, and zeal"
which had characterized all her "plans aud
purposes."
The plans and purposes were, indeed, hers,
promulgated now by statesmanlike papers
aud communications which were republished
in England, Francis, Germany, Bohemia, Italy,
and other foreigu countries", and again by word
of mouth before repru-entativo audiences in
Paris aud othor i;roat ceuters of European
culture with whoso language she is familiar.
Of the momentous results, as expressed in that
epoch-making Congress, we know but the be
ginning. It was the expression of the best
thought of the best women of 27 great nation
alities, in cvory important movement in which
they aro engaged.
Of the 5Jd women of tho 27 nationalities
making up tu Congress, 209 wero representa
tives of 12G organized bodies of women; the
others, like tho great actresses and authors
represented, were women who in thcmsolvC3
wero exponents of the propelling power of
gtnins in achieving fame iu piofossions or voca
tions open alike to women and men.
Of the speakers on the programs there wore

many, 9; France, 7; Canada, G; Scotland and
Sweden, 3 each ; Finland and Denmark. 2
each; Ireland, Italy, Belgium aud New South

The purpososand objects represented were:
Education, 11; literature and art, 5; science,

cluding the "Woman's llelief Corps, 17; moral
aud social, 15; civil and political, 31; industry,
G; Order, 2, aud miscellaneous, 2.
The Congress of .Representative Women,
General and Department, embraced from twoto
20 meetings daily for one week, or an aggre
gate of 81 meetings, exclusivo of committee
meetings. Before these Congresses addresses
were deliveied by 330 women, and so great was
the into. est that all the halls were crowded
day and night, while thousauds were turned
away. The Secretary of tho World's Colum
bian Exposition estimates the aggiegate at
tendance at 150,000 a larger attendance than
upon any Congress held, not even excepting
tho Congress of Religious.
So much for tho magnitude of Mrs. Sewall's
undertaking in seeming aud siftiug this mass
of material, often difficult to secure, and set
ting it forth intelligently in a work of less
thau 1,000 pages. Many difficulties attended
her enterpri-e, but tho work has been well
done, and entitles her to the thanks of her
country and of women everywhere.
Every paper in every General Congrcs3 is
given in whole or in part, aud every subordi
nate, or Department Congress, has at least one
paper. A third volume is iu course of prepara
tion, giving Department Congress proceedings
iu full. ,
Tho vital force of Mr. Sewall's work as an
educator is iu the introductory chapters and
the introduction to chapters. Thus wo have
not only a careful ly-cditcd summing up of
papers read before tho Congress, hut a succinct
explanatory editorial account of tho activities,
organized or unorganized, which those who
prepared and presented those papers represent.
The work is issued in handsome style, tho
cover embelished with a globe circled by tho
motto, "Not for heraclf. but for humanity,"
in gilt, and is crowded with portraits of emi
nent women participating in the Congresaes:

IN PENNSYLVANIA.
Hopes of the Veterans of the 10th District.
The veterans of tho'lOth Pennsylvania
District are making a gallant figki to sorjcl
one of their number, tp repreBont'them in
Congress. The Republican nomine is tJol.
Jos. A. Stahle, who made an excellent record
during the war as Lieutenant-Colonel of the
87th Ta., a splendid regiment raised at York,
and which belonged to the Sixth Corps, which
is praise enough forv it. Comrade Stahle is
very popular in his home, York County,
where he follows farming, and is active and
progressive in everything relating to the in
terests of the people. He is regarded as
the best man who has ever been offered to
the people of his district as their Repre
sentative. There is no doubt that his per
sonal strength will poll him a large vote
outside of his party lines, aud it is hoped that
he will receive the solid veteran voto of the
Counties of Adams, Cumberland and York,
which compose tho District. He should
receive the support of every soldier and
friend of the soldiers, for, whatever his op
ponent may say or do, he will be reckoned
among the enemies of the veterans, and add
to their strength. Th" district is strongly
Democratic. Iu 1892 the Democratic candi
date received 7,109 plurality over his Repub
lican competitor, but in 1893 the Democratic
plurality was only 732, and this gives the
comrades hope that they can carry Col.
Stable through A York County comrade
writes us:
Editok National Tribune: The old
soldiers of the 19th Congressional District
of Pennsylvania now have the opportunity
to elect one of their owni comrades, and
thereby have a friend who will look out for
their interest at Washington.
Col. James A. Stable, of the 87th Pa.,
has been nominated by the Republicans and
indorsed by the better element in the Dem
ocratic party, who are opposed to Pete Strn
binger, the Democratic boss of Adams
County, aud the ring candidate.
Strubinger claims that "the Democrats
had nothing to do with putting down the
rebellion, so to hell with the soldier."
Col. Stahle-'s nomination was a case of
"the office seeking the man," inasmuch as
he did not seek the nomination, but the
people or the old soldiers drafted him into
their service.
Col. Stahle is a man of undoubted inieg
rity, of high moral character, of good judg
'meut and business experience; understands
the ast interests of his district, and is in
every way well qualified to fill the position
to which the people intend to elect him.
He is a fanner by profession, a son of toil,
knowing the wants of the agricultural com
munity. He is iu demand as a speaker at
all the furiuer:' institutes in the district,
because he is known as a practical farmer,
and one well posted up to date on all sub
jects pertaining to their interests.
As a veteran of the late war, he was en
gaged in many a battle, when his bravery
aud patriotism were shown.
The old soldiers in the district should
turn out on the 6th of November and by
their votes for Col. Stable defend Pennsyl
vania from the raid of the ex-Confedeiatcs,
who, under the leadership of Wilson of
"West Virginia are advancing on the indus
tries, the farmers, the homes, of the grand
old State.
The old patriot should be sent toCongres0,
where he can continue the defense of Penn
sylvania against the attacks of those same
fellows who now, since--they are in power,
want to enforce thtf same old ante-bellum
"free trade aud StaCe rhjhts" doctrine that
caused the war.
The old soldiers should not allow them
selves to be fooled by the tricks of their old
enemies, who are-assisting in the canvass
of "Boss" Strubiner. Vuteean.
KNIGHTS OF! PROTECTION.
A Non-Secret, National, Patriotic, and Bene
ficial Order.
Thcro was regularly incorporated in Balti
more last week a new organization, which it

and political relations, aud also to provide prac
tical financial benefits to the families of de

non-secret aud non-sectarian," says ono of the
incorporators, " will comprise the broadest
principles of Americanism, aud will also in
clude adhesion to tho principle of American
protection through tnriff legislation, restriction
of foreigu iinuiiiiration, Euppoit of the public
schools, suppression of anarchy, and the build
ing up of our industrial and commercial in
terests by adhering to a strictly American
policy. It will be conducted under a system
of nssomblios, upon tho lodgo system, with
representative foi in of government, aud there
will ho an annual congress of representatives
from thosoveial States. There will lie in con
junction with tho boneficiul feature a reserve
fund, which is intended to accumulate iu such
manner as to guarantee tho members against
an increasing number of assessments iu after
years, its has bcon tho experience of all the
older Orders which have not provided fiom tho
beginning for this reserve, to caro for advanc
ing ago of the Ordor and its members. The
Order will organize a uniformed rank, such as
tho Knights of Pythias now has, and will seek
in every legitimate way to extend its beneficial
advantages."

Pension Estimates.
According to tho estimates preparer! at tho
Intorior Dopartmont, $165,805,278.83 will bo
ncocssary tocarry on the work of that Depart
ment, including payments forponalons, daring
the next fiscal year. The appropriation for this'
fiscal year was $1G9,55D,950.Q3, and thp sgving
fpr the next year is oslimatod at $13,754,671.20.
Tho decrease in tho estimates for pensions for
159G is $10,000,000.
Tho decrease in pensions, it is said, is a do
creaso from tho appropriation for tho current
year. That appropriation was made before tho
closo of tho last fiscal year, and was for
$10,000,000 moro than tho ainount actually cx
peiidcd last yoar. Tho estimate for 1896 is no
decrease from the amount actually expended
last year, but is based upon tho idea that the
expenditures will bo stationary for tho vcars
